CoachingSearch.com says Sarkisian “in the mix” at Arkansas

It’s the time of year when coaching rumors run rampant.

And one tonight focuses on UW coach Steve Sarkisian, as CoachingSearch.com says it has a source that “multiple people close” to Sarkisian believe that he is “definitely in the mix” to fill the vacancy at Arkansas.

There have been countless rumors connecting Sarkisian to Arkansas, but this is the first report that has as much as an anonymous source saying there could be something to it.

Arkansas is looking to replace John L. Smith, who was the interim coach this year after Bobby Petrino was fired in the spring .

Sarkisian’s contract includes a clause that if he were to leave before Feb. 1, 2013, he would owe UW $2.5 million. He is completing the second year of a contract that runs through the 2015 season (he got a new contract after the 2010 season replacing his original deal and giving him five years).

Sarkisian just completed his fourth regular season at UW and is 26-24 with the Huskies. UW will play in a still-to-be-determined bowl game, as well.

As is often the case in these things, where differenig rumors can come from all over the place, there’s another report tonight that Arkansas is just about to hire Chris Petersen of Boise State.
